Product description

About the Author

Born on San Juan Island, KING ALBERT KELLY STRASSER IV (typically just called Albert, much to his chagrin) considered growing up, thought better of it, and decided instead to begin writing stories for "the people who understand me." An experimenter by nature, he tends to try things that don't work and ask questions that get him into trouble. A Buddhist practitioner, dancer, poet, and eater of pastries, Albert currently resides somewhere new with his imaginary pet salamander, Sir Hugh Hamilton Rothschild Sr.

FLAVIA SORRENTINO lives and works as a freelance illustrator in Rome, where she grew up. She loves her city and the figure of speech, "Rome wasn't built in a day," which inspires her each day to seek new ways of communication and expression. She has worked hard on her technique which has taken her across the globe, from France to America and beyond! She has a true passion for Toulouse-Lautrec, poetry, historical costume, typography, Tina Turner, and tomato sauce!

“In this quirky picture book that reverses a common childhood fear, Ditter is a bunny who lives in a hole, far from the sun; he’s afraid of anything bright. But a waylaid shoe forces him to do the unthinkable: light a candle and look around. To his delight, he discovers a colorful world that’s worth interacting with. The fun, rhyming, onomatopoeic text tracks Ditter’s growth from a shadowed life toward one that’s alive with details worthy of an attentive search-and-find approach.”—Foreword Reviews

“No matter what fear a child may have, this wonderful tale of a dithering rabbit with an unusual approach to life can help allay it.”—
The Florida Times-Union

“As children acknowledge and process the feelings the pandemic has raised, this might be a good addition to collections needing books on sadness and overcoming those feelings.”—
School Library Journal --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
